April Monthly Meeting

There were reminders in April about the AGM and recipe swap for our May meeting and notice from Barbara that she will be standing down as president and that we need both more general committee members and someone to replace her. After the AGM, when we will also discuss the Resolutions, there will be a social activity and as usual the committee will provide the refreshments.

Various recent social occasions had been enjoyed including a theatre trip to the Merlin, the monthly coffee morning in the Hall and the first Friday lunch in the Bell. For the latter we were pleased to be joined by Sparks, our ex-president, who was in Leigh visiting. We were reminded to return the bulb orders by the May meeting and given notice of the Women Walk the World event which would take place on 30th April.

For our entertainment Daniel Mears told us a little about the names, ingredients and origins of various Cocktails and then mixed some for us with a few of the members making their own with his help. He also made some Mocktails with various fruit juices and we were able to sample these at the end of his talk. It made for a very interesting and enjoyable evening, something maybe a little different from many people’s perception of the WI!

Our May meeting will be the AGM at 7.30 on the 8th

April Monthly Meeting - Cocktails and Mocktails

Thank you to Daniel Mears for entertaining us at our April Monthly meeting.

It was fun learning about the history behind cocktails and then for Sue, Jane and Jan Pattison to take turns in making cocktails. Measuring the drinks, adding ice and using the cocktail shaker. All beautifully decorated with stirrers, straws and umbrellas!!


April Monthly Lunch

Our usual Monthly Lunch at The Bell in Leigh on Mendip.  So lovely that Sparks was able to join us.  We heard all about her new life and her seafaring adventures with John.  5 ladies from Leigh WI were there.
